    It was our first time visiting. We came for our wedding anniversary. Steaks were amazing & so flavorful. Crème Brûlée was delicious. Cocktails were made perfectly. Mashed potatoes could have had more flavor. Creamed spinach was good!

    My husband's steak was just a tad bit over cooked. I know they serve the food on 500-degree plates so it could be the steak kept cooking. The service however, although it was busy being father's day weekend, was very good. Our waiter was GREAT. The crab cakes were very flavorful and the drinks were tasty as well. We will go back again on a less busy weekend to give them another shot on the food.

    The food was under seasoned. Everything needed salt and pepper. One of the filets we ordered was served raw instead of rare. They did fix the cooking issue, but you don’t expect that at a place that’s known for their steak. Our server seemed upset when we didn’t order an appetizer and asked us 3 times if we were sure that we didn’t want one after we kindly declined. I felt like I was dealing with a salesperson. I can only eat a certain amount of calories per day and I didn’t want to feel the need to explain that to the server. We were seated on time, but the restaurant is just very loud and feels crowded. There’s too many tables too close together. It doesn’t feel like a five star restaurant. Some people were wearing flip flops and shorts.

    Went for my birthday and the experience top notch! The food tasted GREAT! Our service was excellence! Astrid was warm, friendly, personable and best of all made my experience special. They sprinkle confetti on the tabke upon seating you. The dessert has Happy Birthday written in chocolate on the plate. The Grand Durif wine was awesome and I am seeking out bottles for the future. Thank you Astrid and Ruth's Chris!

    We had the best meal. It was my husband's birthday. We ordered shoestring potatoes in advance because they are not on menu anymore. Oh my they were delicious. For his birthday treat they said order any dessert off menu. That's the first time anywhere that was offered. Other restaurants always bring something you don't really like, no choice. I loved our dinner.

    My wife and I came for a Friday lunch. We both ordered PRIX FIXE LUNCH that includes a starter, entrée & personal side. We started with cocktails, Mt wife had a Tangarey 10 Gin martinis. I had a Ruth’s Manhattan. For our starters my wife had the STEAK HOUSE SALAD and I had the LOBSTER BISQUE. They were both exceptional. For our entree we both had the FILET & SHRIMP* 6 oz midwestern filet with three large shrimp with extra butter and we had the shrimp on side with a yummy remoulade sauce. For sides we ordered creamed spinach and French Fries Classic cut well done.(Upgrade) Best French fries on the planet to have with our steaks The filet steaks were very flavorful and tender, you could cut it with a fork, cooked perfectly at medium and came sizzling on the "hot plate." We have been going to this Ruth's Chris for the past 26 years since their opening, and have always enjoyed a great steak and exceptional dinner experience. Astrid our server gave excellent service, very attentive and knowledgeable.
We will be back soon.

    I made a reservation for 4 at the Irvine location to celebrate my mother in laws BDay. My in-laws have never been to Ruth’s Chris, so if figured I would treat them to something special. This was my first time post pandemic dining here, which I was really looking forward to as well. My usual favorites have been the BBQ shrimp appetizer and the ribeye. So as we are pulling up to the restaurant, there were police present all along the front of the curbside/valet at the front door of the restaurant. This left a bad first impression on my in-laws first experience immediately. I know some things are simply out of the restaurants control, however, the valet service could have done a better job to push traffic along to keep guests moving around the situation. I checked in with the hostess who were very friendly. I noticed that just by waiting in the lobby, it was very loud. We did go at dinner rush hour (6:30pm) however, I was still surprised at how loud it was inside. To be quite honest the food, in my opinion, wasn’t quite up to the quality standard that I remembered from my previous dining experiences here. I order my favorite BBQ shrimp appetizer. To my surprise, it came out much smaller than what I remember. And if recall correctly, the shrimp used to be butterflied as well? We had 3 orders of the lobster bisque and ended up sending back all 3. It was simply not good at all. I usually have photos to share but I actually didn’t take any this time as my overall experience felt very mediocre. And for their current menu prices, I did expect a lot more. Our server was great, though. Suggestions to restaurant manager that would have made my for a better experience: - offered validated valet parking because of the police presence situation out front to guests it indirectly affected. - encourage a calmer environment as it was way too loud. - enforce the dress code. This is an OC steakhouse, not Las Vegas. - food presentation needs improvement.
